"young" Gandalf Can't Post

The filmmakers seem to have decided to give Gandalf a "journey" like the one given to movie-Aragorn in LOTR. You wouldn't think 60 years would make that much difference in an immortal being but, hey, this is the movies. Also, I suppose, it was fun for Sir Ian.

In AUJ, Gandalf is much less sure of himself. He defers to Saruman, of course, but he's also a bit more tentative around Galadriel and Elrond than he will be "later" in LOTR.

Obviously, the time wouldn't matter to an immortal but, perhaps, the writers and actor decided that this adventure would be transformative for Gandalf as well as Bilbo.

                        Galadriel, Elrond and Legolas are bigger worries, but seem to have worked. Gandalf, as the earlier poster suggested AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Apr 27 2013, 10:52pm
